-Rx SMOOTHIES: Drink to Your Health

Serves: 5



As inherently healthful as smoothies are, they should not be thought of as a total meal replacement. However, when protein powders or other meal supplements are blended into a smoothie, you can create an instant meal in no time. In addition, smoothies can be nutritionally enhanced with the addition of one or more healthful supplements, such as herbs and extracts. These health-enhancing boosters are reputed to provide a variety of benefits, including enhancing your energy, improving your memory, protecting against colds, and helping to relieve stress. If you are looking for ways to include more soybean products in your diet, you need look no further than your blender. Although several of the recipes included in this chapter suggest using frozen yogurt, don’t hesitate to substitute your favorite soybean product instead. When soy milk or soy yogurt is combined with other smoothie ingredients, they not only add flavor but at the same time greatly enhance a smoothie’s health benefits.

In this chapter, you will be delighted to discover over twenty recipes designed to appeal to the most health-conscious among us, such as Peach Boys, Happily Ever Apple, and Zany, Brainy Gingko Fruit Smoothie. A smoothie can be prepared with almost any fruit, and when combined with your favorite soybean product, supplement, or herb, the end result will always be a sensationally healthful and delicious treat.
